I agree! I have exactly the same problem wen trying to play zynga poker thru facebook. I use a duel core dell inspiron 9400 with 4gb ram and 100gb sata hdd and i use IE8 (OS is vista ultimate) and it's downright impossible to play a decent poker game without the game freezing or lagging or losing connection full stop and getting booted off the table midgame. I have been cheated out of god knows how many chips and it's driving me mad!! I've tried everything i can think off to resolve this problem like all my display/graphic drivers are up to date and i'm using the latest version of adobe flash (or shockplayer) and i still have the same problem but only when playing zynga poker. As for surfing the net or gaming in general my laptop and connection run perfectly! At first i just assumed facebook or the zynga site was experiencing a few bugs or errors or whatever but but i also have an asus duel core desktop pc (111gb sata hdd and only 1gb ram) that uses IE8 on vista ultimate and zynga poker works perfectly fine on that. If anyone has any advice or even better - a solution i'd be really grateful if you could tell me what i'm doing wrong because i'm out of ideas. Thanks. (btw it's probably completely irrelevent but it's almost as if zynga knows when i've got an excellent hand and doubles it's efforts to disrupt my game lol)

Having the exact same problem both with Zynga Poker (which is extremely frustrating) and with Zynga's Mafia Wars - always having to refresh. Problem seems to have started approximately 3/4 weeks ago - was working fine before that. I have a new Dell (Windows 7), not cluttered as yet and I clear all temp files/cache, etc. several times a day. Problem exists on all browsers I use - IE, Google and Firefox. I have reinstalled Java several times along with everything else I can think of. Agree with emj65, it seems to know when you go all in or a major bet and everything freezes and you just have to sit and wait to see if comes back at warp speed, folded you, or disconnected you. Frustrating even more when you have paid fake chips and enter into tournament and it happens. Believe there many people that is experiencing this problem - so any solution or advice would be very much appreciated !

I've got the same problem, but it didn't start until the middle of July. It happens on both IE8 and Google Chrome. I've run full virus and malware (incl. Norton online scan). Nothing detected. I ran a couple of different speed checks and there was no probs. Cleaned all cookies, temp files, etc. Checked Flashplayer. All was up to date. Freezing still happening.
Un-installed Chrome, cleaned up any traces, then re-installed.
This has partially eased the problem. It still occurs but only occassionally (maybe once a day, as opposed to every 4-5 minutes).
Other games played (thru Facebook) are also more unreliable compared with how they were a month ago.
I haven't made any changes to my PC.
Anyone have any ideas?

I have all of these problems while playing Zynga poker, it will work fine it seems until im up or about to win a Sit N Go lol and then its like its timing out. Usually refreshing solves the problem but then when i refresh im out of my game and i lost my money for entering the tournament, sometimes as much as 100k ... its ridiculous they should at lest refund my money. But it pisses me off when im about to win and it does that crap.

Zynga have not done anything to fix this problem in god knows how long. Some days it plays, some days it does not. This is unacceptable. And it's not like it is a free app. it is not. Me and many others pay CASH to buy extra chips then are duped by YOUR [censor] APPLICATION. You should scrap the whole app and start again. its RUBBISH!!!

Zynga - takin poker chips after i spent real money on them
United States

i don't know whether or not you can help me on june 18th i spent 200.00 on zynga poker chipe, on the 22nd of june my facebook account alongwith my email account were hacked. the hacker stole my chips, (zynga replaced), so after two hours of he** i got back into both accounts long enough to get my email addies, my pics, list of my friends, and tranferred the poker chips i had to my new facebook account, now yesterday, (june 29th) zynga suspended my account, for what i don't know, and when i got back into it the 112million in chips i had were gone and there was only 1million left. they say my behavior warranted this but all i do is sit and play poker and chat with the few friends i have made. would rather have my chips back, but want one or the other returned. also is their any legal action i can take???

It must be some sort of hardware/windows problem, I suffer the same as all mentioned above when playing on mt HP laptop which ist dual core 320hd running vista. But it works perfectly on my desktop dual core running xp pro.
Having said this it worked well on laptop uptil 6 months ago so probably a windows update causing problem.

Zynga Texas Holdem - stolen chips
United States

I played for months on Facebook with Zyngo Texas Holdem. I have been locked out before with what they say is a violation. The two times before they said someone hacked me and took me thru a bunch of steps to get my chips back. This time they locked me out telling me that I violated their policy. I have asked many times "what I did" they kept sending me their policy, but never told me what I did wrong. I lost $800, 000, 000 in chips. The terrible thing is that I won these chips fair and square. I am 53 years old and don't even know how to cheat! LOL Anyway, IF any one can help me that is great, but for me I want the world to know that this organization robbed me of my chips!
Thank goodness there are other poker sites. DO NOT PLAY ON THIS SITE
